This application offers a convenient solution for converting image files. In addition, it works as a powerful photo editor that allows you to enhance the appearance of pictures.
The program comes with an elegant and modern interface, with the main functions nicely organized in modules. The tabbed appearance facilitates easy access to the features that are specific to conversion, enhancement, and watermark attachment. Loading the files is easy, both by dragging-and-dropping the images into the program and by browsing through your computer. A good thing about this tool is that it allows you to add entire folders of files, as the utility has batch conversion and editing capabilities. What is more, you can import files directly from your webcam or scanner.
What differentiates jaladaPhotoConverter from other similar apps is the wide range of formats supported. Thus, you have the ability to convert photos into up to 54 different image formats – a quite extensive number of file types that few software programs support. Before enabling the conversion, you can select the quality of the target files. In other words, you can preserve the original quality, or you can lower it down for storage space reasons. In addition, you have the option to rename the new files by adding number or text-based suffixes and prefixes to a default file name.
As I already anticipated, the utility has editing abilities. The program comes with basic functions, such as rotating or changing luminosity issues, among which I want to emphasize the 'Temperature' option, which allows you to confer a more or less cold or warm look to your photos. Moreover, the tool provides a series of special effects that bring an exquisite appearance to the pictures. This way, you can change the pictures into black and white, make them look like oil paintings, apply 3D effects, and so on. Furthermore, you can change the background by applying original textures. Resizing the photos is also possible. In this regard, the utility offers you the right means to select default height and width picture dimensions, as well as custom sizes.
Another great feature refers to the ability to personalize the output images with text and picture watermarks. Like most similar programs, you can select the font and the color of the input text, as well as the distance between the figures. Additionally, you have the chance to adjust the transparency and to add a shadow effect to both text and image watermarks.
The features mentioned above make jaladaPhotoConverter a great tool, mainly since it will fulfill most of your photo enhancement needs and because it provides a very large array of image file formats you can convert your images into. However, I would appreciate a before/after preview window, so that I can compare the original picture with the resulting image.
